About Peter Phillips

British painter Peter Phillips was born in Birmingham, England, and studiedat the Birmingham College of Art and at the Royal College of Art (RCA). Phillips emerged as one of the leading figures of British Pop art in the 1960s with several fellow RCA students, including Derek Boshier, David Hockney, Allen Jones, and R. B. Kitaj. When he was awarded a Harkness Fellowship he moved to New York, where he exhibited alongside American contemporaries Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and James Rosenquist. Phillips later returned to Europe, where he now resides and continues to paint and exhibit. His work ranges from conventional oils on canvas to multi-media compositions and collages to sculptures and architecture. —Courtesy of Fine Art Auctions Miami
